Best 2010s Albums That Won a Grammy for Album of the Year

The Top Ten
1 Random Access Memories - Daft Punk Random Access Memories - Daft Punk Product Image

I agree this album was great also even if the 2010s album of the year winners weren’t necessarily the best would you argue if I said they seem to make way more sense overall than the 2000s winners?

As much as I enjoyed both Red and GKMC, this is the album that needed to win, both in terms of the artist relevancy and the quality of the album

2 The Suburbs - Arcade Fire The Suburbs - Arcade Fire Product Image

Probably the most surprising one from the list, specially compared to how succesful the other nominees were (Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Eminem)

The perfect choice of that year. Too bad Funeral didn't get one.

3 21 - Adele 21 - Adele Product Image

I just listened to this album (I don't listen to many albums) and despite it's flaws the biggest probably being a lack of variance I really liked it. The amazing thing I realized though is that I actually already knew all but 2 of the songs.

Basically the most succesful album of the decade, it might not be the best one from the winners but is still an iconic one, and also the best Adele album to date

4 24k Magic - Bruno Mars 24k Magic - Bruno Mars Product Image

Honestly I was kind of disappointed by this album it wasn't bad but most of the non singles were pretty forgettable honestly.

Despite not being as good as the other nominees (Lorde specially) I still enjoy this album, 2018 nominees were actually really good tbh

5 Golden Hour - Kacey Musgraves Golden Hour - Kacey Musgraves Product Image

I give this one here not only by the quality but also for being one of the only 2 albums who were decent in that nomination alongside Dirty Computer

It's really good but I think Dirty Computer is slightly better. Most of the songs are just a little more memorable.

6 25 - Adele 25 - Adele Product Image

Not a bad option, however Lemonade and ASGTE were more interesting, also, it's neither as good as 21 was - Pato_cargo

7 1989 - Taylor Swift 1989 - Taylor Swift Product Image

It has some truly amazing pop songs but I guess it won't necessarily have that great a cultural impact of course it was also pretty uneven.

Not a bad choice and arguably the best Taylor Swift album, but I was nominated alongside TPAB by Kendrick Lamar which was superior all the way

8 When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? - Billie Eilish When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? - Billie Eilish Product Image

“Please don’t be me”- Billie Eilish
Honestly I’m much more worried about putting too much pressure on Billie Eilish at such a young age than the thought that she maybe doesn’t deserve the recognition hell I would say this album is better than Father of the Bride and NFR.

Not a bad album, but Lana Del Rey, Vampire Weekend and Tyler the Creator (which wasn't even nominated) deserved the award way more than her, this only makes more obvious how desperate is the musical industry to push Billie Eilish by everyone's throat

9 Morning Phase - Beck Morning Phase - Beck Product Image

Not a bad album, but not a pretty memorable one neither, and not the best Beck album, Beyonce's self titled was definitely a better choice

Yeah it does sound nice but it isn’t memorable at all I heard it yesterday and can hardly remember how most of the songs go.

10 Babel - Mumford & Sons Babel - Mumford & Sons Product Image

From what I have heard from Mumford and Sons I can understand why it's last. I wouldn't say they are horrible but just not that interesting. - Powell

From all the albums who won the award, this is the only one that I legitimately don't like at all - Pato_cargo
